Panda is a pretty solid AV, I actually like it, and it scores high overall on every catagory, so its a rounded product as well. Especially considering its mostly free.. http://www.av-comparatives.org/seiten/ergebnisse_2004_02yl.php Scores right up there with the best of them, and considerably higher than products like NOD32. Panda doesn't appear to Submit to VirusBulletin anymore, and many people put that as a negative strike on it, but since it scores great everywhere else, who cares I guess. For high-threat environments I wouldn't trust it. But for overall general PC's and average joes, it seems like an idea and FREE product to me! I've been able to put a few things past it, which is why I don't use it personally though - that and it has zero configurability. (and I like to tweak) Since its free, it might be the perfect option for the average guy.
